Tom Wilkinson might terrorize The Lone Ranger

Dec. 7, 2011by:

Gore Verbinski is looking for a cast for his next film, the adaptation of THE LONE RANGER, and he may have found the villain. 

Tom Wilkinson is apparently closing in on a deal to play the lead villain of the film, Latham Cole. He'll be joining a pretty high profile cast, most notably Armie Hammer as the titular character, Johnny Depp as his sidekick Tonto, and Ruth Wilson as the female lead.

Other actors being considered for roles include Barry Pepper, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale and Dwight Yoakum.

Things seem to be moving ahead fairly quickly for the film now, since Disney finally greenlit it after sidelining it for almost a year over concerns with its budget. The budget was dropped from $260 million to $215 million and the stars have taken salary cuts to make sure the film gets made. We'll see if it was worth it, but Wilkinson as s villain certainly seems like a step in the right direction.

LOL at the fact that Disney thought $260 million was too much, but that $215 million seemed reasonable for Lone Ranger movie. Hollywood, when will you learn? Hopefully the movie is good.

How the hell can they be spending so much on a movie that needs some actors, horses and costumes? I smell a Wild Wild West remake.

As long as he's not a werewolf, I'm definitely on board with Wilkinson. Despite showing up in almost every movie made these days, I never tire of that guy.

Good casting, but this might be another Cowboys vs Aliens (Box Office wise).
